Paramedic Job – Australian Army Reserve Sydney


Why join the Army Reserve?

If you’re looking for a new challenge, the Army Reserve could be for you. You’ll enjoy the satisfaction of giving something back to Australia, while benefiting from:

•           Tax-free daily pay

•           Free healthcare and accommodation when serving

•           A flexible commitment

•           Rewarding work that builds on your day job

•           Comprehensive training

•           A supportive team environment

•           Friendships that last a lifetime

All that plus exciting opportunities supporting Army domestic activities, including exercises and operations, with potential deployments overseas in support of Australian and coalition personnel.

NOTE:  This is an example of the types of jobs you can do when you have attained pre-hospital health care qualifications or are looking to find a pathway into Australian Defense Force jobs as a combat medic. We encourage you to conduct your own research on the online jobs boards such as SEEK, Indeed and Jora.

Paramedic Job – Your part time role

In the Army Reserve you’ll be trained to expand your paramedic capabilities far beyond your civilian work. Your skills and resourcefulness will be tested as you provide:

•          Pre-hospital emergency care

•           Resuscitation

•           Evacuation coordination, and

•           Primary health care when necessary.

This could happen anywhere from an Army exercise interstate to operations overseas, so you’ll acquire plenty of knowledge to take back to your day job.
